"Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding," says Ebenezer Scrooge.

brilliantly narrated Christmas classic

Dickens was written to be read aloud. This classic Christmas tale is brought to life by the narrator, who adds colour to the words. I thoroughly enjoyed a tale narrated that I have read many times before. I would highly recommend this version.

Tried several versions - this was the best

Would you listen to A Christmas Carol [Blackstone Version] again? Why?

Yes - I will probably be forced to as it's part of the new Eduqas GCSE English spec.


What did you like best about this story?

It's a brilliant timeless classic


Have you listened to any of Simon Prebble’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but this was superb. I had bought two other versions - one was so deep no one could understand it and the other they had "amended" the text. This one is perfect.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but you could do.


Any additional comments?

The kids do seem to like this one. They are better able to follow it and have stopped whinging about the voice, so winners all round!
